    Abstract

    The continuous composite girders are frequently used for railway bridges. The features of the composite girders for railway bridges are characterized by Perfo-Bond Leisten and steel fiber reinforcement concrete. In this study, the behavior of a crack formation is investigated in comparison with experimental results of the test-specimens with Perfo-Bond Leisten and those of studs. In addition, the experimental results of the test-specimens with steel fiber reinforcement are examined with a view to the effect of the reinforcement on the crack. The validity of the tension stiffening theory was confirmed by comparison with experimental results and numerical results.
